Join DIFC Academy, Lexis Nexis Middle East and Stephenson Harwood for an online CLPD-Accredited training session "Understanding UAE’s Federal Trust Law"

In a landmark development, His Highness the President of the UAE, Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has ushered in a new era for trust law with the enactment of Federal Decree-Law No. 31/2023. This legislation, issued on September 25, 2023, introduces significant amendments and a comprehensive regulatory framework for trusts at both the federal and Emirate levels. It clarifies the enhanced roles of the settlor and trust protector, establishes a new trust registration process and provides a robust framework for trustee accountability.

  • Overview of key provisions
  • Trust registration process
  • Trustee’s duties and liabilities
  • Recognition of Trusts
  • Legal impact for UAE onshore and financial free zones
